Computer Science MSc Graduates Showcase their Research at Event in TCD

Posted on: 21 September 2009

The School of Computer Science and Statistics in collaboration with Trinity Research and Innovation and the Careers Advisory Service hosted a showcase of student research projects at an event opened by the Dean of Graduate Studies, Professor Carol O'Sullivan, in TCD's Hamilton Building on September 18th last.  Students of the taught MSc level courses arranged talks and poster presentations which gave business, industry, public sector and academia an opportunity to link with the graduates of four MSc programmes.

Graduates from Interactive Entertainment Technology, Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing, Networks and Distributed Systems and Technology and Learning took part and presented their research work at the event.  During their studies at Trinity College, graduates on these programmes gained experience of the latest tools and technologies and have been exposed to cutting-edge research being conducted within the School of Computer Science and Statistics.  The nature of the work undertaken aims to equip these graduates with transferable skills relevant to careers in the global technological industries. 

As part of their MSc studies, students undertake an individual research project leading to a submission of a dissertation of publishable standard.  This dissertation reflects an independent piece of exploratory research involving design, development and evaluation of state-of-the-art solutions significantly contributing to the advancement of technology.

Approximately 40 projects from a broad range of areas were showcased at this years' event.  Student projects included 3D tracking of the human body using cameras; a task based interactive graphic tool for teaching tenses in the EFL classroom; Improving Traffic Management using Trajectory Prediction and Implicit and Explicit User Modelling Techniques for Interactive Visual Knowledge Discovery.  For more information on graduate studies in TCD's School of Computer Science and Statistics please see the School's website.
